Apidra is the brand name of an insulin glulisine injection. Insulin glulisine is used to treat type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Insulin glulisine is a man-made version of human insulin that begins working quickly. It works for a short time to control increases in blood sugar that may occur after meals. Apidra is intended to be used together with a longer-acting insulin or an insulin pump to control blood sugar. Insulin glulisine works by helping move sugar from the blood into other body tissues where it is used for energy. Apidra comes as a liquid to inject subcutaneously (under the skin) up to 15 minutes before a meal or within 20 minutes after starting a meal.
